that paid for the plan and she did not explain why the obama administration will withhold those numbers from the public until december 15. >> the numbers are consistent with the numbers that massachusetts reported and that we feel are the most accurate by the 15th of december and we will be able to tell you how many people have paid for this coverage. lou: or disturbing numbers. 55% say they believe the obama administration tried to deceive them about obamacare. compared to only 30% many say we need to throw obamacare out and begin again and 42% say keep trying to fix it and 10% say leave it alne. well, let's find out our guests tonight have to say. joining us is andrea and greg. cohost of the five and thank you both for being here. i would like to turn to you, andrea. she has become a metaphor for what is going on with health care dog of an obamacare itself. it's striking that this thing just doesn't work and we still are having conflicting claims is whether or not it can be fixed as the administration promises. >> that's right, she is and who she said she was. and now she's getting bullied

will the need for the obama and administration and what she did? werke aig is great news. he h a bad couple of weeks with the launch but it shows the policy put in place years ago are paid dividends. where people are partipating and it is good all-around heading into the holiday season where people have confidence and spent more buddy it shows we have to stay the course talking to about jobless benefits that helps to fuel the growth for people to participate and this creates more jobs. congress has to make sure it is a fragile recovery they cannot have that same sort of brings michelle to threaten to appear the debt ceiling and ready to get up a deal when we are supposed to. >> in the '80s and '90s we did not have just a tax increase of cuts but that have been dip this year that could have called is like having 400,000 jobs created because we're not in stimulus motive to do more. it was good news. >> so if we have a government is shut down assembly will have auarter reported taken off for gdp what a powerful economic engine and then we have third quarter gdp growth of 3.6% invested a couple
? that is weird. >> that is the perverse part of this, this is a public relations game, obama administration has done this astutely equating j.p. morgan as the culprit for the financial crisis in this case, bank of america. neil: done the same institutions have a lot of other -- the source of this, liabilities. >> bank of america, clearly, was asked by federal government, prodded to buy countrywide, countrywide. neil: the source of subprime. >> here is why country wide sold them, they were prodded by the federal government to do so including fannie and freddie. neil: critics of those en institutions saying they knew well they were inheriting those liabilities? >> no, you can never tell how much. i don't think that jamie dimon or ken lewis who was the ceo of bank of america, right now it is moynihan 9. neil: they hate you about which one. neil: both, lewis and main moynihan. >> i get along with them. full disclosure -- i don't think they have any idea they would be walking into a firestorm of fat cat, name-calling antibank sentiment that has become the obama administration, if you, 88 jamie dimon
starts right now. and welcome to "hannity." the obama administration and its left wing lackeys are trying to re-launch the disastrous program on the health care law. but unfortunately, the damage is done. we're now learning more about the security risks associated with this website. now listen to what david kennedy, the so-called white hat hacker, talk about the development. >> when they created this website they kind of threw a lot of things together, mixed and matched a bunch of parts putting it on the site to be used by the general public. so when you have that type of website it is actually hard to go back and fix that security around it because the security was not built into it. so it will take months to address, over a year possibly to at least the critical exposures. >> no security in mind when they built the website? that is pretty disturbing. now, unfortunately, there is more to come. according to a report in "the washington post," the enrollment records for millions who have chosen to enroll in the on-line marketplace, continue to generate errors in the computer system, meaning
one, new zealand. they made a lot of harry potter movies. >> we're4 because of obama administration, highest corporate tax that is a killer. >> other country showcase rate. neil: why are we 14. >> i don't know if i can. neil: you better. >> what is surprising i would never take issue with forbing magazine, but thesere country that have socialized medicine provide everyone at birth, every one of those country health care is a right not a privilege. >> what are they doing right? >> they are letting business do business. >> and government getting out of the way. >> no government is taking responsibility, they are take -- >> 7 of those have a lot of benefits that we're fighting for here that could ease burden on company. >> no, i think that government is -- anvil around the necks of these businesses. neil: by the way with health care you would think that be the draw to at least take us out of the top 20, maybe to top 10. >> we have not gone where they are. >> it has already been a job killer. >> none of these country have an obamacare health care system. neil: we are 14. >> they have si
with improved response times and decreased error rates. but the obama administration has downplayed expectations in the past week saying the man could actually outweigh capacity, and today's report indicates there is still more work to be done. the real test lies ahead when millions of uninsured americans could try to enroll by an initial december 23rd deadline. we have mike rogers of michigan. he also sits on the on us and commerce committee over the jurisdiction of health and human services. welcome to both of you and welcome to "meet the press "snoochlt. >> just your reaction to this report. dramatic progress, private sector-like velocity. the promise was for the website to be fully functioning by now. are you satisfied? >> overstated. have they made some progress and they brought in some folks to try to bring the functionality up. it still doesn't function right. their own cio said he believed that if they had the ability to get up to 80% functionality, that would be a good day for them. so, a, the functionality is right. here's a part of this discussion that nobody talks about. the security
an estimated bill and then we'll fact check and see. the obama administration will fact check and see and make sure that what they've estimated is the true cost. >> i just don't understand this, bob. an estimated bill based on what? something like 1/3 of the people signing up here have not really signed up because there's no payment mechanisms. we're going to have guest estimates and the government is going to give the insurance company the money and the insurance company is going to hand over the subsidies to people who didn't sign up officially. this is a little "alice in wonderland" for me. >> you know how screwed up healthcare.gov was? well, they didn't fix the back end. it's so screwed up that the federal government, the obama administration, can't pay the insurance companies their share of the subsidy premium. people get subsidies to help buy insurance and the federal government provides those. the administration hasn't built that part of the administration yet. here we are, it's almost january 1. the back -- almost none of the back part of the system works. they still can't transfer the

obama care tax that is reportedly pricey. we are trying to learn if this administration has quietly passed a rule giving unions a very big break on that tax. trace gallagher has the story. >> reporter: the tax is called a reinsurance fee. it's on nearly every health plan for the first three years, meant to raise about $25 billion over the three years to help pay for people with pre-existing conditions. if the change is approved nobody would be exempt next year. in 2015 and 2016 groups that act as their own insurance companies and their own claims processors would be exempt to unions that self-insure would greatly benefit. republican senator orin hatch says it certainly looks like the obama administration is looking at a special deal for unions which is deeply concerning given the problems that all americans are facing due to obama care. now the unions argue this is not aimed at them. it's not nearly enough. the laborers union says, again quoting, as the new regulations offer no substantive relief for our health care plan the laborers union will continue to look for opportunities to

more reason to trust insurers than the obama administration. they're just trying to keep their heads down. >> now, instead of having an actual system making sure that the t's are crossed and is are dotted we're going on an honor system. insurers going to tell them this is how much taxpayer money i want. we're going cut checks. >> real area is in the size of the subsidies. that is where the true honor system is. there was a report issued today that says if the irs didn't have a system to check what your income is, and that is going to incentivize a lot of americans to say i didn't make that much money this year, give me a bigger check. that is where fraud is >> my head is switching just in this segment. thank you for being here. before this news broke, the president attempted to hit the reset button on his health care law. the law works. really? how does it work exactly if there is no mechanism for payment for coverage? you heard him go out there and defend the law in familiar ways. he did it when the approval rating hit a record low to cording to the average of all polls look. in the
and crazy, and the whole idea of moving it was the bush administration's idea before the obama administration carried it out, but that doesn't carry well on world net daily or presumably with jeb bush. take care, jeb bush, maybe it is too crazy to be true, and you should take it easy. and today, the craziest story was the dead mice being parasuited into guam to combat snakes. the story says at anderson air force base, in guam, they want to control the street snakes because brown tree snakes are not native, there's no natural predator to keep them in check. turns out the snakes are vulnerable to acetminphene. so the government has been dropping thousands of dead mice loaded with tylenol into the trees in guam to be poisonous debate for the snakes. the person running the program is a director of supervisory wildlife biology. his name is dan vice. actually, this story is true. >> u.s. department of agriculture assisted state director wildlife biologist dan vice explains the process that is proving successful at controlling the ground tree snake population. >> what we're going to b

for the obama administration, but if it had gone the other way, imagine what we're looking at for costs that were $2400 more than projected. what do you think they would be saying? >> would they be on the hook for it, absolutely. no one would say we don't know if this is obama care or not. >> clearly i think obama care is part of the story, the downturn is part of the story. the downturn can't be all. i heard people saying people are out of work. that's true but they have been out of work, the downturn was 2009. let's imagine ten million people lose their jobs, we expect to fall off in spending. but the economy is certainly better today than it was in 2009, so -- >> i want to put dollars and cents to this. this is the difference in the cbo projected savings. they're projects $222 billion in a year from medicare and medicaid from this slowing of health care costs. the sequester is $87.9, and the cuts to food stamps is $23.8 billion. >>> i have been on twitter all day about this, they can't find a single positive thing to say about the law. literally it could bring people's health care co
